Trapani, on the west coast of Sicily, is the capital of the province of Trapani. It is the main landing spot for those who come to Sicily from all around Europe -- Trapani's airport is used by all the low-cost companies to fly to Sicily. The city is well developed and is a busy, touristic place, mostly in summer (June to September).

The city is nice to explore, so with a walk in the center of the old city you can find a lot of historical buildings, like churches -- Sant'Agostino; Santa Maria de Gesu; and the Basilica of Maria Santissima Annunziata, also called the Madonna di Trapani; the Cathedral and the Casa Ciambra. Nearby you can also find some beaches, but the best one, not too far, should be Marausa -- south of the city -- and if you have a car, you won't have any problems finding it.

Nearby, you also have a small town, called Erice, that is definitely worth a visit. It's a medieval castle with the town built inside the walls. The castle is well preserved and you can take the cable car from the city. The narrow streets and the old-fashioned squares and stores makes it a charming town.

Trapani is easily accessed by airplane from all Europe -- is the third-biggest airport in the island, but all the low cost companies fly here; after landing, the best way to explore Sicily is by renting a car. It's flexible, can take you everywhere, and is not really expensive if you are sharing with two or three people.

As this is the main city to receive backpackers in Sicily, it will be easy to find some hostels in Trapani. Remember that in Sicily the concept of bed and breakfast is the most common, but they also have small dorms -- usually four or six people maximum.
